As Consumer Spending Declines, Love and Laughter Are Free This Valentine’s Season with Custom Snuggle® Serenade Music Videos – Softening over 50,000 Hearts and Counting!

Snuggle Bear Continues his Mission of Making the World a Softer Place
by Empowering Consumers to Create Free Personalized Video Serenades
Starring Their Loved Ones

WILTON, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), consumer spending on
Valentine’s Day is expected to slip this year after a decade-long
increase. Despite the decrease in spending, Valentine’s Day still
continues to be a popular gift-giving occasion. With lovers and friends
being more frugal in their gift-giving, music and song provide an
entertaining and free alternative to help express our feelings during
this season of love.

On January 21st (National Hug Day), Snuggle Bear, the iconic
mascot of one of the fastest growing Fabric Conditioner brands, began
helping the tongue-tied express themselves at no cost with customizable
Snuggle Serenades music videos starring a friend or loved one. Building
on the popular music trend seen on late night TV and on new
music-centric shows, where customization of songs has been gaining
wide-spread attention, the Snuggle Serenades campaign is a great example
of offering consumers the reins to create their own content in a fun and
expressive fashion. To date, Snuggle Bear has lent his voice in more
than 50,000 customized valentine serenades, with the overall campaign
reaching an estimated audience of over 140 million through digital,
mobile, social and PR.

The NRF reports consumers plan to spend $1 billion on greeting cards
this Valentine’s season, but with Snuggle Serenades, you can send your
special someone a tailor-made video that they can play and replay – no
postage stamp required! Set against classic love songs, “(I’ve Had) The
Time of My Life” and “Lovin’ You,” Snuggle Bear showcases his soft voice
and smooth moves throughout the videos. Since the campaign kicked off,
fans have split their choice of song about 50/50 between each one.
Featuring uploaded pictures of your friend or loved one, Snuggle
Serenades make it simple and fun to share a heartfelt and humorous
greeting this Valentine’s season.
